Sachin Tendulkar wants to make cricket a global sport
Legendary batsman Sachin Tendulkar feels that cricket might be second most popular sports in the world in order to make it a global sport more countries need to play in showpiece events like the ICC world cup.
Tendulkar who is in America with Australian spin legend Shane Warne for the inaugural Cricket All Stars 2015 to play a three city Twenty 20 rubber involving retired stars of the game said that the idea behind the series is not only to popularize the game in the US but to globalize as there is a need to have more countries taking up the sport competitively.
“People have the opinions that there should be less teams. But we need to find a solution and work towards it together to make cricket a global sports and not have just 8-12 countries compete all the time and be happy with that. From the time first World Cup in 1975 till now there are only 9-12 teams that compete for the World Cup. If we don’t take steps towards globalizing the sport it is never going to happen.”
“The ICC should make more efforts to involve more countries in 50 over World Cup so that they can get exposure to play with worlds best teams. Sachin Tendulkar said by playing in the US it will help the people to know more about the game and inspire many people to take interest in the game.”
